    Are Chia Seeds Keto?

    Yes, you can have chia seeds on the keto diet. Chia seeds are often used in recipes to act as a thickener. That’s is their job in this low carb pudding recipe. The chia seeds absorb water as they soak in the nut milk. They expand into a thick, creamy substance.Not only are they low in carbs but they work to help keep you full. Once consumed the chia seeds can expand in your gut and slow down digestion which will keep you full longer. Plus they contain a ton of fiber.pouring a tablespoon of chia seeds into glass of nut milk

    Keto Milk Options for Chia Pudding

    I usually use nut milk to make chia pudding. My favorite nut milk to use when making keto chia pudding is macadamia nut milk. It is higher in fat compared to almond milk or coconut milk and it is very low in carbs. I’m talking 0-1 net carbs per serving! But you can use almond, coconut, cashew or pili nut milk too.If you are allergic to nuts or like the taste, you can use heavy whipping cream. Using heavy cream will also make the lemon chia pudding very creamy too.container of macadamia nut milk

    Instant Chia Pudding

    If you need instant gratification and want to make this keto chia pudding now, you can. But it will take some special equipment – a blender. Instead of waiting for the chia seeds to absorb the liquid and expand overnight, using a blender will allow this process to happen faster. The blender will break open the chia seeds so they can absorb liquid right away forming a pudding consistency right away.Don’t have a blender?? That’s okay, a food processor would work. You won’t get the tiny chia bubbles if you use a food processor or blender but you will get instant chia pudding!chia seeds floating on top of a glass of milk

    1. Absolutely delicious. My husband who is not doing keto with me stole it, and ate it for dessert instead of the non-keto chocolate mousse in pecan crust that he has specifically requested a few days prior.
